I agree. Art more or less explores the possibilities, the available

If there is any continuation of a 'tradition' it is indeed to be found
in the areas you mention. Jazz of course is an extremely wide and diverse
world. Some of it has become 'art' music, so of it has gone off on
tangents that are as obscure (to me at least) as e.g. serialism.

It is certainly a source of nutrition, but not a paradigm with
its own foundations in the sense that e.g. baroque, romantic, jazz,
rock & roll are. It's more like just a state of affairs rather than
something that can survive on its own merits, that hundreds of years
later a music student can return to and add to his/her toolbox.
